Massage Envy Raises $5 Million for Arthritis Foundation

Massage Envy’s more than 1,150 locations joined forces for the annual Healing Hands for Arthritis event to raise $908,846 for the Arthritis Foundation. The partnership is now in its sixth year and has collectively raised more than $5 million to help the more than 50 million Americans, including 300,000 children, living with the disease.

“As the nation’s leading provider of therapeutic massage and skincare services, we consider raising awareness of the therapeutic benefits of routine massage for people suffering from arthritis essential,” said Joe Magnacca, CEO at Massage Envy. “At Massage Envy, we believe every person should feel their best and have access to affordable massage and skincare services as part of their wellness routine.”

Massage Envy franchised locations around the nation donated $10 to the Arthritis Foundation for every 60-minute massage or facial session performed on Sept. 28. The funds raised will help support life-changing resources and advancements for people with arthritis.

“Our partnership with Massage Envy has allowed us to expand our programming to better serve those living with arthritis and help them win the fight against pain and anxiety, so they can live their best life possible,” said Ann M. Palmer, president and chief executive officer of the Arthritis Foundation.

For those interested in contributing to the Arthritis Foundation, donations are accepted all year long at www.arthritis.org/donate.php.
